New Orleans, LA, USA (1956 – present)

Clarence “Frogman” Henry (b. Clarence Henry, 19 Mar 1937 in New Orleans, LA, USA - aka Clarence ‘Frogman’ Henry & Clarence Frogman Henry), is an singer. Fats Domino & Professor Longhair were young Henry’s main influences, whilst growing up. When playing in talent shows, he dressed like Longhair & wore a wig, with braids on both sides. His ‘trademark’ croak - utilized manifestly, on his 1956 début hit Ain’t Got No Home - earned his nickname & jump-started a career that endures, to this day. You Always Hurt The One You Love & (I Don’t Know Why) but I Do (both 1961), were also big hits.

Henry opened eighteen concerts for The Beatles across the US & Canada (1964) - However, his main source of income was from the Bourbon St strip (New Orleans), where he played for nineteen years. His name could still draw hordes of tourists, long after his hit-making days had ended. “Ain’t Got No Home”, achieved fresh notoriety in the 1990s - through its use, for a time, as the “Homeless Update” theme music, on The Rush Limbaugh Show.

Clarence Henry’s pioneering contribution, to the genre, has been recognized by the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. Mark Sandman (lead singer / bass player, of the rock band Morphine) - during a home-studio interview - cited Frogman as an important influence.
